LP Lacquer Paints
The stunning tones and lustrous glossy finish provided by airbrushing Tamiya
Color Lacquer Paint are perfect for model car and motorcycle paint jobs, and its
tough membrane is perfectly suited to treatment with polishing compounds.
Colours previously only available as sprays - Pearl blue, Mica red, Pure
orange and more, are now in bottled form removing the need for decanting
when you want to airbrush.
Tamiya Color Lacquer Paint’s true, consistent tones make it perfect for
airbrushing large areas. Mix 1 part Lacquer Paint with 1-2 parts dedicated
thinner, and make 2-3 passes over the subject with your airbrush. Pick out the
details with Tamiya Color mini acrylic paints: Lacquer Paints provide a durable
base coat that remains undamaged even by enamel topcoats.
Tamiya Color Lacquer Paint dries quickly: most colours are safe to touch after an hour
and can be masked on top of 24 hours later, saving valuable time in the production of
your masterpiece. Again, as Lacquer Paints provide a durable base coat that remains
undamaged by enamel counterparts, there is less worry during paint jobs that require
multiple layers of paint.
Tamiya Color Lacquer Paints Resistance to enamel paints is a big advantage in
the weathering process too, as enamel paints are most commonly used for the
application of washes and depiction of dirt, grime and oil, in particular on military
model subjects. Just apply a Lacquer Paint base coat and get to work weathering!
